I need some opinions on how to get a bigger wakeboarding wake on a 93 prostar 205 we have a fat sack (700 lbs) i think. Where is the best place for it for a good wake. It seems like i get a little more wake on the passenger side of the boat instead of the drivers which is my stronger side. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Across the back seat floor area. Take out your seat and put fatback there.

Also consider a ski locker sack or something for the bow to even it out. Don't need as much there.

We use 5 gal plastic water containers in our 96 205 plus the fatsack at the back (put the rear seat base up as the sun-lounger and the FS under that) depending on the number of people we have in the boat usually we put 2-3 containers up front in the footwell in the bow, one on its side in the little walkway bit. Then use 4-6 down the sides (2-3 on each side), we can then shift the weight around to sort the wake out so it's nice and crisp :)

Best we've done was a fat seat in the back, fat sac in the bow, two side tubes and all the water containers plus about 8 people dotted around the boat. That ended up at about 4000rpm just to keep it on the plane!

Was the rub rail underwater when not on plane? lol That had to be a great wake though. My dad has a '93 Prostar 205 and we like about 700 pounds in the rear. It's no X-star wake but it is very snappy.

Close! We nearly sank a 96 X-Star at the European/British wakeboard champs back in '96 in the doubleup comp. LPG tank, 3 fat sacs in the back, fat tubes down the sides, couple of sacs up front, water barrels and the whole boat literally full of people. The boat sat so low that it churned the bottom of the lake!

Couldn't find one of the boat loaded up but it was as or close to my post below:

This is my boat (but without ballast) never bothered with loaded up photo's in those days

sweet thanks for the input. Looks like we definitely need some more weight in the front to even the boat out in the water.
